You may also photocopy the full text of this report if you give it away for free.


French translation of the first part of this report; en FrancaisSwedish translation; Svensk översättning. Brazilian newspaper summary of this article, in Portuguese; Sumário do artigo no português.

This report was first posted on the web on the morning of July 1. Since then, I've revised several sections in response to reader requests for clarifications, and have added additional deceits which have been pointed out by readers or journalists. As a result, the number of listed deceits has been raised from 56 to 59.


Thanks to the readers who have written to point out additional deceits or to point out items which need clarification. Also thanks to the readers who have written in defense of Moore. Many such readers have been rational and civil. Moore's reasonable defenders have made two main points:


First, notwithstanding the specific falsehoods, isn't the film as a whole filled with many important truths?


Not really. We can divide the film into three major parts. The first part (Bush, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan) is so permeated with lies that most of the scenes amount to lies. The second, shortest part involves domestic issues and the USA PATRIOT Act. So far, I've identified only one clear falsehood in this segment (Rep. Porter Goss's toll-free number). So this part, at least arguably, presents useful information. The third part, on Iraq, has several outright falsehoods--such as the Saddam regime's murder of Americans, and the regime's connection with al Qaeda. Other scenes in the third part--such as Iraqi casualties, interviews with American soldiers, and the material on bereaved mother Lila Lipscomb--are not blatant lies; but the information presented is so extremely one-sided (the only Iraqi casualties are innocents, nobody in Iraq is grateful for liberation, all the American soldiers are disillusioned, except for the sadists) that the overall picture of the Iraq War is false.

You are not going to get me banned, Are you? LoL

Any how, I have to tell you that in the end of the movie most people clapped for what Mr. Moore did.

Here in Iran, we hardly trust any thing foreign like your policies. I have nothing to do with your domestic issues but I should tell you there are many wrong things with your policies in the middle east.
